Gollum

The Gollum sector of stocks - silver miners - are making a comeback.

Those filthy hobit-ses had stolen the share price of these 3 stocks, but recently they have bounced back. They are Endeavor Silver (EXK), Fortuna Silver Mines (FSM), and Great Panther Silver (GPL). Will the Silver Miners finally recover, or burn in the fires of Mordor?


Workaholics - 1

The drama in Cyprus makes for a beer on the roof. 

This week was a big whatever but as usual Mastery fouund a few stocks worth considering and a reason to mention best comedy TV series in 2013, Workaholics. 

The drama in Cyprus is keeping stocks at bay and that won't end until at least next Tuesday.  Until that time keep a large cash position and check out these Pulitzer quality articles.

 

Mit Romney and Terminators

I'm sure this Juggernaut of online retail will never recover.  If you think that, you're just as cool as the Mittster.

A stock that is on our constant watch list is Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN).  Today AMZN hit a new low for 2013 of $252.62.  Rather than argue about if Amazon.com is an expensive stock, you can't deny they are the future of retail and 'the cloud'.  Betting against Amazon.com is like voting for Mitt Romney at this point.  You can't win.  Amazon is the internets, the end.  However for the exercise of considering Amazon.com right now, let's get into it.

Rocky IV - Russia Juiced Up

Simply put, Russia is pissed.

Russia is not up for paying the bill to bailout Cyprus.  All more the reason to consider staying in cold hard cash and small positions in the iPath S&P 500 VIX ST Futures ETN (VXX) and ProShares Short S&P500 (SH).  President Vladimir Putin went on record and he believes the terms are "dangerous" and "unfair".

Cyprus Drama: Now will Stocks Fall?

300 Movie - Cliff

You bet your ass and we suspect volatility will kick in.

The news of Cyprus closing it's banks until Thursday has got us thinking the iPath S&P 500 VIX ST Futures ETN (VXX) and ProShares Short S&P500 (SH) are the weapons of choice.  Trading could get very rocky and it's reminiscent of the Bear Sterns and Lehman Brothers disaster.  There's no panic yet but that's because we all don't think Cyprus has much clout to move the world markets.


Breaking Bad - Gus

If you are going to stay in stocks, here's what you should consider. 

This week we found hope in JetBlue Inc (JBLU), SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Angie's List Inc (ANGI).  The Dow Jones and S&P 500 are at record highs and it's critical to pick the right stocks.
